People who believe The Da Vinci Code is real are crazy...

From an article titled "'Code' a blessing for some churches":

Whether Brown's thriller deserves to be taken so seriously by religious leaders is unclear. A survey released this month by the Barna Group, a religious polling firm, found that 5 percent of U.S. adults who had read the book said it had changed some of their religious beliefs or perspectives.
Five percent does not equal a majority. A majority, by definition, is 50 percent plus one. The book is a rallying point for evangelicals (not that there's anything wrong with that). The Church shouldn't need an excuse to spread the Word. The 'Code' is not taking over the world.

The Da Vinci Code is a fictional book that the media has blown out of proportion to imply that the general public's conception and views of the Church are actively changing as a direct result.
